Are you from Buenos Aires?

You know you are a porteño when:
- At any time of the day, a café con leche and 2 medialunas can be considered a square meal
- You can, at all times, find a heladería within 3 blocks
- You would much rather be a
bostero xeneise than a maldita gallina, and you know what that means
- In your
barrio, there are more people on the streets at 3 am than 3 pm
¿Qué sé yo?
- Nothing is good anymore, it's
- You have learned how to get across Avenida Libertador without getting run over, before the pedestrian light even turns green
- You have accepted the fact that you cannot successfully walk across
9 de Julio before the lights turn red, because everyone knows it's the widest avenue in the world
- You instinctively cross yourself everytime you pass a church, even when riding on the bus
- Your guía
Lumi is old and falling apart, but you still won't leave home without it
- You can walk the entire length of Florida without being heckled once by a money-changer or flyer distributor
- $60 is far too much to pay for anything, unless, of course, it is an unbreakable
termo para el mate
- You consider both
superpancho and choripan to be hearty meals
- Based on taste alone, you can pick out a
Terrabusi alfajor in a double-blind test
- You complain about everything while in Buenos Aires, but as soon as you leave, you begin to miss it
- Upon getting into a taxi, instead of stating your destination, you give a series of turns and street names, entering into a battle of wits over who knows the grid best
- You generally communicate better in gestures than actually conversing
- You know the attractive women all over Palermo Hollywood are really men, but that's OK
- You think nothing of hopping on a bus for 15 hours to get away for the weekend
- You don't find it surprising that 2 of these hours are spent leaving the city
- No matter how hectic life gets, you can always find time to
tomarse unos mates
- Nothing is cool anymore, it's
re-canchero. You and your friends, (who are all capos and copados, obvio) are re-chochos because you just saw a recital that was alucinante.
- You have forgotten your name and now only answer to a string of epithets, such as
che, maestro, flaco, papá, tigre, fierita, pibe, etc.
- You don't
coges el bus or tomas la guagua, you subís al bondi
- You don't go out to
comer, you go to morfar
- You have come to accept the fact that Buenos Aires sometimes huele a mar, even though it's a five hour drive to the ocean
- Fito Paez just passed by on the street and nobody seemed to notice
- A bar at a car wash, a Kosher McDonald's, and a Museo del Jamón all seem to make sense, somehow
- You know where to see the movies for 2 mangos, but still go to Village Recoleta because it's top
- You know that a disco is not a place to dance or a genre of music, but a place to buy food
- You eat sandwiches without crusts, pizza with a knife and fork and empanadas with your fingers
- You find yourself eating ñoquis on the 29th of each month, and not really knowing why
- You stay out till 6 am at a boliche but are still fresh as a daisy for your class at 9
- You mix ketchup and mayo, slather the beastly concoction on everything, and have the audacity to call it
salsa golf
- You begin to wonder how Washington D.C. got off copying the obelisco, why London stole Buenos Aires' phone booths and letter boxes, and why Milan’s La Scala operahouse had to steal the blueprints for Teatro Colón
- You get used to the fact that though you live in a port city, you rarely, if ever, see the waterfront.
- You don't find it at all confusing thatthere are streets called Peña, Rodríguez Peña, Luis Saenz Peña and Roque Saenz Peña, all in fairly close proximity. Nor that there are an Yrigoyen and Irigoyen that intersect, despite their different spellings.
- It makes perfect sense that the seediest redlight bars are directly alongside Recoleta cemetery, where the Argentine aristocracy is buried
- You are nostalgic for the bygone days of Carlos Gardel, or of Evita's Casa Rosada speeches, or even Maradonna's "hand of God" goal, even though you never saw any of them
- It doesn't seem to bother you that a "drugstore" sells anything but drugs
- You can get everything delivered to your
departamento...from munchies to mariachis
- You consider it rude when you throw a party and people show up on time, while you are still making preparations,
- You feel comfortable wearing
alpargatas just about anywhere
- You can't imagine drinking coffee without briskly following it with a shot glass of mineral water
- You know all the parts of a cow and you're not a butcher or a veterinarian
- You refer to everything outside the capital as the interior of the country
- You realise that Neuquen is a palindrome, Salta a command and Buenos Aires a cruel joke, given the level of air pollution
- No weekend feels complete without a trip to the feria
- You are a self-made expert on EVERYTHING
- Your favourite thing to do is
fiaca or huevo, the special actions of not doing anything
- You drink your mate
amargo but eat dulce de leche on everything
- You realise that when there is a
superclasico, everything halts for el fútbol
- You can find Evita’s grave blindfolded, and know that Carlos Gardel is buried in Chacarita, even though nobody knows for sure where he was born
- Your swear words include colourful descriptions of the birthing process and the private parts of a parrot
- Everything is a
- It seems normal that professional dog walkers are dragged around by up to 20 canines, and that there is a bus to cart dogs around the city to the parks

hahahaha I lived in Argentina and they are all true!! I could not have made this list, it must have taken you a lot of time. I loved the they know all the parts of the cow. But they call the parts of the body with the commercial name, maybe the "tapa de asado" means the butt of the cow, but that is how they call it. I had an apartment rental in Buenos Aires and bought everything at Disco (I knew it was not a night club to dance but a supermarket, I can consider myself half portenia, right?) and the butcher offered me everything so quickyly I ended up buying different parts every time. I think I have tried all the cow and I like it!

I do not create a lot of comments, however i did some searching and wound up here "Are you from Buenos Aires?".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.
Could it be just me or does it seem like some
of these comments come across as if they are written by brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.

Could you make a list of every one of your communal

When asked what it is that people want translation to be, Bellos responds that “People, for various cultural reasons and reasons of education and so forth, often have the idea that a translation to be a translation has to be the same as the original that it's translating.” Bellos disagrees with this argument as all expressions even when restated in the same language will vary. “They vary historically. They vary in the specific language patterns that you're dealing. They vary depending on the kind of text or object that you're translating.” Instead of seeking the same expression in the target language, Bellos states that the art of translation seeks likeness or a good match. This brought to mind the Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s infamous quote “To be or not to be. That is the question.” I’ve often seen this translated as “Ser o no ser, he ahí la pregunta,” which conveys the message but I couldn’t help but to feel that something was lost in translation. After researching this phrase, I stumbled upon Tomás Segovia’s ingenious translation "Ser o no ser, de eso se trata," In this inarguably rich equivalent, the recently deceased poet and translator avoids a literal approach and in my opinion focuses on the spirit of the message.
